Dr. Angela Campbell

Senior Lecturer, Critical Studies

Arts Academy



Camp St Campus, Online


Dr Angela Campbell’s research and published work in theatre and performance has been both practical and theoretical. Dr Campbell has investigated performance from the archives, site-specific theatre, the politics and poetics of place, intercultural theatre, Indigenous theatre, contemporary paradigms and practices in theatre and performance, and practice-led research. Angela is currently exploring studies in voice and has completed a number workshops with Kristin Linklater in Orkney.

Angela’s research interests have developed from 15 years of experience as a freelance actor and theatre creator in a range of industry environments from mainstream to independent production. She co-founded Hildegard Theatre, which worked with culturally specific material and intercultural collaboration to create award-winning new work that toured nationally and internationally.

Angela’s most recent publication is a co-edited book, Located Research: Regional Places, Transitions and Challenges (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020). She is Program Co-ordinator of the Bachelor of Visual Arts at Federation University Australia.
